About the Author

Stanford Smith

My love of technology started when I was eight years old. My parents bought me the Bill Cosby computer - the TI-994A. I spent so much time programming that box that my parents "threatened" to send me outside to play!During college I tinkered with technology but wanted a way to combine my inner geek with my growing fascination with marketing. On August 9, 1995 I was working at a little strip mall Radio Shack store. The televisions were tuned to a cable business channel that was reporting on the IPO of a 16-month old start-up called Netscape. That day, Netscape's founders became billionaires. I was hooked by web marketing ever since.Eighteen-years later, I'm still fascinated by technology, marketing, and the power of the social web to level the playing field for small and medium sized businesses.I blog about my perspectives at PushingSocial.com, recently ranked, for the 2nd consecutive year, as being a Top 10 Social Media blog. I also work one-on-one with passionate entrepreneurs to use content marketing, social media, and good ole-fashioned chutzpah to achieve their business and personal goals.
